Tag Sale Tips for Sellers
Source Your Inventory
First, it’s important to review your items that you wish to sell. Even if you have doubts about some items selling, it’s still worth it to give it a try and lay out what you have. You’ll never know unless you try. Keep this saying in mind when preparing your sale: “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure!”
Many sales have hundreds of items with tiny price tags or stickers. Sometimes these tags can suggest that you’re not willing to bargain on prices, other times it gives people an idea of where they can meet you half way. The best strategy is to create a simple spreadsheet with all of your items listed and prices next to them, but keep this to yourself and use it as a guide. You might also want to make notes or descriptions, especially if you’re selling antiques or unique items that require a description.
Organization is key. Don’t clutter your items and try to keep similar elements of the sale in categories. This allows for easy browsing and makes your items look better. You’ll gain bargaining power if the item is presented in a organized manner.
Tag Sale Advertising
Keywords in your advertising are key indicators to people whether or not the sale will be desirable. Attention getting titles and phrases include:
“Everything Must Go”
These descriptions tend to yield great turnouts because people are seeking deals! Smart shoppers and buyers look for key words such as “Antiques” and “Collectibles” and tend to believe that you know your inventory, in which case you may be less likely to negotiate on price. Best thing to do is understand your inventory but keep your descriptions and advertising subtle.
Don’t forget, you can advertise your physical sales (time, date & description) for FREE on Tagsellit.com.
